Hey guys! Should I kinda reintroduce my blog or has it not really been that long? It feels super-duper long to me and that is no fault of anyone but me! So although it has indeed been long-time no see, it is also a good to see you all again if that makes any sort of sense =) I will try to keep this post a bit on the shorter side as I do want to give you guys an update on why I just upped and disappeared but I also do not want to ramble on and throw myself any sort of pity parade so without further ado let’s get into it…Actually a few things before I get totally in to it…
- Totally sorry for going M.I.A the past few weeks guys!
- If you are reading this, THANK YOU so much! For the continuous support although I haven’t been the best blogger out there, means a ton to me!
- I hope over the past month you guys have been doing just perfect and living exciting, productive lives =)
Okie! Now we can jump into the post =)
So, my last posted issued was dated April 4th, 2017 and it wasn’t much of a happy go lucky kinda post to be honest, it was much more of a downer. From around March 29th to April 11th I had been in quite a dark cloud, things were spiralling out of control not all things but a pretty large part of my life which is work. I had no control over what was happening, it caught me totally off guard and I had never been in a situation like that before. I had been laid off then shortly after my position was reinstated but only temporarily which I was thankful to at least be employed a little longer no matter how awkward it was going to be to come into an office that I knew I would soon not have a place with my name much longer.
Asides from work dramatics, I was in a panic as I was going away to Thailand quite soon after all of this had blown up and I was totally scared about coming back to only be jobless. Definitely not the news you need before vacationing, it’s pretty hard to get into the relaxation/carefree mood! I was in complete terror that I had just spent a TON and still needed more money to go on this trip to have a comfortable time, just the thought of thinking I could have been on one of my last pay cheques was frightening at this time.
So guys! As you can see my issues stemmed from work, there were other small things going on but I believe those small things happened as my mind was just so distracted that I started doing foolish things like dropping my phone in the toilet which led me to having to buy the exact same phone for $400.00…Can you imagine what my thoughts were…I wanted to pull out my hair! Another day I thought I lost my car keys which that morning I just lost my mind, thankfully I had a spare key but funny enough I found my original key later on that very day…As I said my mind was just in such a state that I had myself doing foolish things which made things worse.
With all that going on, I just said to myself that I had nothing positive to write about, I didn’t feel like doing anything good therefore I just stopped writing. I told myself I would go on my trip as I cannot do anything about that now and try to make the very best out of it and hopefully come back with a positive outlook.
Now!! Here I am =) April 25th, 2017, back from my Thailand vacation which I must say was an amazing experience, I would for sure recommend visiting Thailand as it is such a beautiful country with countless things to see and do. As of today, I am feeling much better about everything in my life. The trip definitely did take a lot off of my mind so that was a huge help but also being reassured that I did indeed have my position reinstated before leaving helped make things easier as well. Today is my second day back to the office which of course things are still up in the air; I work with a company that has A LOT of politics behind everything that is done so things as this do not pass over easily. I am sure that I will be in for a rollercoaster as I am already set for a meeting on Wednesday but! At least I know the worst of the worst that can come from my job which makes me a bit more at ease and ready to take action.
Speaking of taking action, prior to hearing the bad news at work I was interested in exploring other options within the company I work for which led me to applying for another position and guess what guys! I was able to score an interview with the manager for the position the day before leaving for my trip so it all worked out in perfect timing. Now, after going through the interview I cannot say that I am 100% confident that things will work in my favor as I do lack experience in the field as it is much more sales related but! I did have a chance and I tried so I will take it for that and see where it leads me. With that said, things slowly started to brighten up again as that gave me a little boost.
Enough talk about work but I just wanted to let you all know what was bothering me and brought my posts to a halt. So as I said, I recently came back from my trip to Thailand which was amazing! I totally plan on making a complete post dedicated to my trip and I am even thinking of making a few posts regarding my trip as I visited 4 different parts of Thailand, let me know what you guys think! This trip was like no other I have been on, I seen and experienced so much! For sure when I do end up going back to Asia I plan on allowing myself more than just 10 days as such a short period of time does not do any justice!
So guys! Long story short that is what had happened and why I was away and not writing. I was just not feeling like myself or I guess I was feeling like only one side of myself which was the sad and frustrated side. I did not want to continuously post negative things and did not want to put on a happy persona as it would have all been false. Now as I am picking back up, I am hopeful to start posting regularly again and can’t wait to share some great content and also read great content as during my time of not writing I also was guilty of not reading. Again, to anyone that is reading this thank you for welcoming me back to this platform and can’t wait to see where things go from here!
See you soon, I promise! Until the next Lifestyleforyoureyes post
